So, I was at a buddies house watching the Superbowl (Actually I was there for the cookout (Salmon, ya’ll) and conversation), and I got a Tweet and email from a kind blogger (InkGypsy) that wanted to feature the podcast in a post on a sad day for Oncers (With a Superbowl on, but no OUAT). I replied and gave InkGypsy the info she asked for.
A little while later, I saw a confirmation Tweet and read through the post and was blown away.
InkGypsy’s blog post about the podcast is the most thorough and well written review I have ever read. She caught the essence of who we are, what we do and is probably the most engaging post I’ve read in a long time.
Here is an excerpt, “While I’ve seen a few podcasts stutter into being then fizzle out since the beginning of the show, this one, and its home website, has gone from strength to strength, showing no signs of slowing down. They provide new content and/or food for thought daily via their blog (with lots of fantastic visuals, like these two – left and right – shown for comparison), Twitter feed, Facebook page and, of course, when new podcast episodes are available to listen to. It’s also more encompassing and up-to-date than anything fan-related/driven on the Once Upon A Time website.”

If you are a listener of the OUAT Fan Podcast or a visitor of the blog or forum I would ask that you would check out the InkGypsy’s site. It’s called the Once Upon a Time Blog – Fairy Tale News. As you can expect, it covers fairy tale news, from all angles (OUAT, Grimm, original stories, etc). I would also say that it’s probably the most artful and beautiful site I’ve seen in a long time. The photos and artwork she posts with her writing and reviews are so good. The one thing I try (really hard) to model here is we send out love and kindness, and we also return kindness and love, too. I would like you to go to her site: http://fairytalenewsblog.blogspot.com check it out and leave a kind comment and let her know what her fantastic review meant to you and this podcast/blog/site.
I am again humbled (again and again) as we take this trek of the growth of this amazing little podcast that is continuing to grow and catch people’s attention. With that in mind, we should never ever take any step of kindness for granted. I’m going right now to take a more thorough look at InkGypsy’s site. I hope you will, too.
